Seaside Rotarians have been hard at work in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, making sure that help is being given to those who need it the most!
In less than 2 weeks Seaside Rotary working with donors and community ambassadors has accomplished so much!
Due to the ongoing relationships we have with community leaders in some of the poorest neighborhoods, we were able to quickly identify and respond to those hit the hardest by the economic crisis that resulted from the pandemic in our area. In the last couple of weeks, we have responded by providing support in the form of despensas, gift cards, and/or other life-sustaining supplies to:
* 213 people in 55 families at the Torres de la Paz community
* 42 individuals in 9 families who were quarantined
* 359 people in 74 families in the Cristo Rey community
Over 1,000 individuals in total, and we’re still counting!
We could not have done this without the support of our community ambassadors. These are citizen leaders in the community who have dedicated their lives to making their corner of the world a better place. They are well respected and understand the needs of the families in their community.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our ambassadors who make these distributions possible. These are the true heroes who help us to safely distribute the despensas and connect us with those in the most need of assistance. We could not do this without them.
Seaside Rotarians have also been supporting the doctors, nurses, and support staff at our local community hospitals. We have supplied 1,000 face masks to 2 hospitals to help healthcare workers to be safe.
In addition to this, we are partnering with another local Rotary club to provide face shields to these healthcare workers. We have purchased supplies to support the assembly of thousands of face shields. And we won’t stop there. We have requested a list from the doctors and nurses of needed supplies and are committed to working our magic to get them what they need.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS!
We could not have done this without the financial support from you, our donors.
This is only the beginning.
There is no tourism, therefore there is no work.
There is no unemployment check coming.
There is no economic impact payment.
We will continue to provide assistance to the families that need it most during these troubling times! We are in this for the long haul. Every day more families are identified. We need your help. Your continued support of our efforts is critical.
